Busy fur-parents can now hire a pet taxi to take their pets to vet, day care

Shweta Bhatia, the owner of a pet taxi service, makes it easy for busy pet owners to chauffeur their pets around the hectic city of Dubai.

Bhatia operates a 24-hour service where she transports pets and their owners to and from pet daycare, the veterinarian, and other locations.

In the words of Batia, a pet lover: “It makes me very very happy because I am a pet enthusiast… It gives me an immense pleasure, helping and assisting a lot of pet parents, a lot of pet clients and their fur kids.”

Batia left her corporate job to open her unique business earlier this year.

When it comes to traveling around with pets, pet owners in the UAE have it hard because most taxis and ride-sharing services do not allow animals.

One of Bhatia’s regular clients, Gazala Anwar, remarked, “In UAE, dogs are not allowed in the normal taxis, so it’s never been easy, even in other car options, you cannot take your pets in that, so ‘Smile for Tail’ is doing a big favor for parents who don’t drive or who don’t have any other option.”

Currently operating one car, Bhatia aims to expand her business and help out more pet owners. BKM/ Expat Media
